Alternate terminology in OTC labeling

This article was originally published in The Tan Sheet

Executive Summary

FDA will allow interchangeable use of certain words in required labeling under a final rule published Jan. 28. In response to a comment from NDMA ("The Tan Sheet" June 14, 1993, p. 14), FDA said it agrees that some words are interchangeable, including: "clean" or "cleanse"; "persist(s)" or "continue(s)"; "assistance" or "help"; "pulmonary" or "lung"; and "indication" or "use." FDA disagreed with the interchangeable use of the words "chronic" and "persistent." In soliciting comments on alternate OTC labeling terminology in April 1993, FDA also noted that "physician" and "doctor" as well as "consult" and "ask" are considered by the agency to be interchangeable ("The Tan Sheet" April 5, 1993, p. 9)
